Wildlife Acoustics, makers of the Song Sleuth bird identifying app, is conducting a sweepstakes in which the winner will go birding with David Sibley in May 2018.

logo-song-sleuth-sweepstakesThe “Song Sleuth with Sibley” Sweepstakes presented with L.L.Bean gives birders the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bird with Sibley, the renowned artist and author of The Sibley Guide to Birds, The Sibley Guide to Trees, and other books. Sibley also writes the column “ID Toolkit” in each issue of BirdWatching magazine.

The sweepstakes winner will receive air travel and hotel accommodation for two to Freeport, Maine, for three nights, two birding outings and one meal with Sibley, a $1,000 shopping spree with a personal shopper at L.L.Bean’s flagship store, and two copies of the Song Sleuth app.

“Maine is one of my favorite places, for birding or otherwise,” said Sibley, who collaborated on the development of Song Sleuth. “I look forward to sharing the majesty of the area and my birding knowledge with the winner during the height of spring migration in the area.”

“We are pleased to team up with David and L.L.Bean to give one lucky birder the opportunity to not only add to their life list, but also cross one off their bucket list,” said Robert Gierschick, Wildlife Acoustics director of marketing. “It’s a chance to not only ‘check your Sibley’, but to actually check with Sibley.”

The outings will take place during the L.L.Bean Birding Festival, May 26-28, 2018. The festival includes multiple birding trips, presentations by birding experts, and other birding-related activities.

The sweepstakes coincides with the launch of Song Sleuth 2.0 in mid-February. Along with new capabilities and the addition of more species, an Android version of Song Sleuth will also be introduced.
